Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We live in country Victoria, 20 minutes from Warnambool and less than 10 minutes to the seaside port of Port Fairy, voted Worlds most liveable community! Also famous for its Scottish and Irish heritage and many festivals such as Folk Festival, Jazz Fesitival, Classical Music and Winter Weekends. We have a lovely modern spacious home available to share, host or swap. It is set in a peaceful rural landscape, but only 10 minutes drive to the local village of Port Fairy (population 2,500) or 20 mins to the larger town of Warrnambool (population 20,000). We are located near the western end of The Great Ocean Road and just south of The Grampians. Melbourne is 3-4 hours by car, but accessible by train, coach and air.

We are a semi-retired professional couple with backgrounds in education and psychology. We have done a number of home exchanges; mainly non-simultaneous. As a result of our exchanges we have developed strong friendships.
